SEWING BASICS: HOW TO SEW
ON A BUTTON
Just FACS
STEP 1: MATCH BUTTON AND THREAD
п‚ў
Select a suitable button and thread that matches the
button, the garment, and any thread used to sew on
other buttons.
If you have a button pop off and you can't take care of it
immediately, use a safety pin to hold the garment closed and be sure
to keep track of the button. It's best to use the original button if you
have it.
п‚— Make a place to keep track of the extra buttons that come in baggies
with new garments, if they're not sewn into an inner seam
somewhere. Label the buttons if you can.
п‚—
STEP 2: THREAD THE NEEDLE
п‚ў
If you like, you can double the thread to make this
job quicker. Simply pull it through the needle so that
there is an equal length of thread extending from
both sides.
STEP 3: TIE A KNOT
п‚ў
Tie a knot at the end of the thread. One way to tie a knot is to
wrap the thread around your finger as shown, roll the thread
between your fingers, and pull it tight. If you doubled the thread,
tie the ends together. Leave a long tail of thread, whether you are
doubling the thread or using a single thread that way you can sew
the button.
STEP 4: POSITION
п‚ў
Position the button on the fabric. Line the button
up with the other buttons on the garment.
Check the buttonhole. Close the opposite flap or
panel where you want it and make sure that the
button lines up with the buttonhole.
п‚— If the button was on correctly before, you can often go
by the little holes in the fabric where the button used
to be. You can see the pinholes alongside the button
in the photo.
п‚—
STEP 5: PUSH AND PULL
п‚ў
Push the threaded needle up through the fabric
and through one hole in the button. Pull the
thread all the way through on each stitch.
STEP 6: CREATE SOME SLACK
п‚ў
Place a pin or toothpick across the center of the button and hold it
there until the next stitch helps keep it in place. When the pin is
withdrawn later, it will allow the slack necessary to create a
"shank" so that there will be space between behind the button for
the material that will need to go there when the garment is
buttoned.
STEP 7: FIRST STITCH
п‚ў
Push the needle down through the next hole and through the
fabric. Still holding the pin in place, pull the thread all the way
through. Once that is done, the pin will be kept in place by the
thread. In this photo, the button was lifted up to show what's
going where, but it's best to hold the button in place so it does not
move.
MORE BUTTON EXAMPLES
п‚ў
п‚ў
On a 4-hole button choose
the one diagonal to the
first hole if you want the
threads to cross in an "X"
formation.
If you want two parallel
lines of thread showing,
choose the next hole that
is opposite the first.
STEP 8: GOING UP
п‚ў
Bring the needle up through the first hole (for a
2-hole button) or a new hole (for a 4-hole button)
and pull the thread all the way through the
fabric.
STEP 9: REPEAT
п‚ў
Repeat the sewing process enough times to make sure
the button is securely in place. On 4-hole buttons,
make sure that the stitches have been made evenly,
so that all four holes are equally used.
STEP 10: LAST STITCH
п‚ў
On the last stitch, push the needle through the
material, but not through a hole in the button.
STEP 11: REMOVE THE PIN
п‚ў
Pull the thread out into the area between button and
material, remove the pin and pull up the button a
little.
STEP 12: WRAPPING IT UP
п‚ў
Wrap the thread six times around the thread
between the button and the material to reinforce the
shank you have created.
STEP 13: PUSH
п‚ў
Push the needle back down through the material.
STEP 14: SECURE IT
п‚ў
Make three or four back stitches to secure the
thread.
STEP 15: CUT IT OFF
п‚ў
Cut off the excess thread.
